This client is a vulnerable man in his 40s. He has slept rough for many years and is now in a bedsit. He receives benefits but has high food costs due to a special diet and travel costs due to his disability. He is appealing the refusal of Personal Independent Payment so is on a reduced income. The client has gained weight due to his severely reduced mobility and has very little clothing that fits. We are seeking support to buy two pairs of trousers, two t-shirts, two jumpers and a pair of shoes for the winter.
This lady has suffered significant trauma and abuse and has very poor mental health. She lives in social housing and experienced an issue with bathroom plumbing which has meant her lounge flooded whilst she was in hospital, ruining her lounge decor and carpet. She has been living with a concrete floor for two years but recently keeps getting ill and the heating doesn’t work enough to make it warm. She is embarrassed to have friends round, so is becoming more isolated she is not well enough to work. Your support to help her buy a carpet would make a huge difference.
This lady has recently moved after a marriage breakdown. She is disabled with an illness that causes her joints to dislocate many times a day. She needs carers to attend everyday. She desperately needs a fridge freezer to replace a small fridge which she struggles to get to because of her painful joints. She also has 2 children, one of which is hyperactive. Your help to buy a fridge freezer would help her life to be a little easier. Thank you.
J struggles with severe mental and physical health issues. When we visited we found the house in a bad state and the lady was not eating properly. We have taken food to her and started looking at her debts and how else we can support. This lady needs help in buying her own cooker.
T is on Employment Support Allowance and Personal Independent Payment and has managed well until recently. Unexpected bills from utilities and car maintenance have left T struggling to recover. She is unable to use public transport as she has a disability. Help now would stop a downward spiral into debt. Any help would be greatly appreciated. T has sought advice from a debt management centre and is getting help to create a budget.
D is disabled with severe arthritis and is wheelchair bound, she also has depression and anxiety. She's been evicted due to her landlord not paying her rent forward. She has been given a flat because it isn't her fault, but isn't able to move in until there is a carpet in there. There is nothing at all but we are hoping that if we can help with some of the other essential goods, that you might help her with a carpet? Thank you so much!
